July 19, 2013 No nude posing level in-depth

WARNING: This page is the in-depth version – most likely, you want the in-brief version, linked from The Essentials page. This version is much more work and more detailed than is necessary for most users. Only proceed on this in-depth page if you have specifically been directed to the in-depth version (rare).

As discussed in the Posing Levels SDLP, the No-nude is an additional level “below” the nude-only posing level, where models are not “technically” nude.

This SDLP has “in-brief” (~25 minutes + ~30 minutes for Quiz) and this, the “in-depth” (~2.5 hours) versions.

No nude in-depth

Pre-requisite assignment

Before reviewing the presentation video, you must do some real-world research (not on the internet!). Speak to two men about what they find sexy about women who do not wear much clothing.

  • Ask one man about what they find sexy about women in bikinis at the beach.
  • Ask another man what they find sexy about women in short-shorts and singlet tops.

Be careful to avoid making assumptions. Question them closely and deeply. Take notes on what they say. There’s a few rules:

  • You cannot ask an abbywinters.com staff member, or anyone in the adult industry
  • You cannot ask your partner, or a family member
  • The men must be 16 years or older
  • You must ask probing questions, to find your subject’s true intent

It’s best to speak to the men one-on-one, so there’s no “showboating” for onlookers, and definitely do not talk to both men together: you want distinctive individual answers. Don’t accept answers such as “I like women for their mind” – we’re looking for a more base, animal answer than that! However, “Phowar!” is not much use either – get past that, and find the why.

Read the Wikipedia article on root-cause analysis, the 5 Why’s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5_Whys.  While this system is designed for fault-finding, the key is to encourage you to avoid assumptions and logic traps, and instead trace the underlying reasoning.
